differently. he supported tax increases. what does that say to you? >> two things. he joins a growing list of senators whoa are frustrated with the senate. that's a problem for all americans. not one party or another, but it has to be functional again. two, split cally speaking, it's not a safe republican state. this is what people have to keep their eye on. republicans lean as the favorites in the beginning. nothing is a sure thing even in the state of georgia. >> what do you think? you study georgia closely. >> absolutely. one of the first states i campaign in. he said it has been a really outstanding conservative member before i got to know him. as well as the united states senate. he is on the farm bills and authored most of the authorization bills. clearly his decision is personal i'm sure. he is frustrated with washington, d.c. and members of both parties are frustrated with the gridlock. the republicans will nominate somebody in main street, but while georgia is the so-called red state, president obama was able to get more than 45% of the vote there. i assume that we are going have

reagan, you know, spoke so much about that and about taxes as well. >> well, i think that the real turning point for this president was that debt debate over the debt ceiling in july and august of 2011 and there an opportunity there and it came close, and i will not ascribe blame because there is probably enough going around when it looked like the president and john boehner were able to make a grand bargain, 3, $4 trillion in deficit reduction, it fell apart and rightly or wrongly it seems clear that the president and the white house decided at that point, we can't do business with these guys. boehner can't control the tea party element in his own house. and we're going to have to start running for president and running for president, pushing a liberal agenda. really from mid-summer, boehner says from labor day of 2011, he was very much running for president, pushing the liberal agenda. he was the protector of the middle class. and it is continued up through his re-election and now we see it in his inaugural address, very little talk about common ground. you know he basically dism

the tax credit that exists for consumers. it is important to keep a variety of options available for consumers. if we are going to meet the 2025 standards of 52.5 miles per gallon, it is going to take not just more hybrid vehicles, but it will also take continued improvement in the efficiency of the internal combustion engine, and companies are focused on that. when you walk around the auto show, they will have exhibits that show some of the things they're doing that make the traditional gasoline-powered engine even more efficient and increase gas mileage. host: next call from matt blunt, president of the american automotive policy council -- dug in syracuse, new york. caller: good morning. mr. blunt, i wonder if you could explain to the american taxpayer and consumer why the taxpayer bailout should not be totally paid back by the government, to the government, by the big three auto makers. guest: you know, the government has an ownership stake in general motors today. they have worked with the government, a general motors and the government have come to an agreement about the re
the senate democrats and president george herbert walker bush passed an agreement, including tax increases, to at last begin to tackle the deficit. and i remind everyone here as i take my leave from the senate, when president george h.w. bush returned from agreeing to a deficit reduction agreement at andrews air force base, he wrote in his personal diary that he might well have sealed his fate as a one-term president. he did what he thought was right for the country and he laid the groundwork for our ability to three times balance the budget at the end of the 1990's. that's courage, and the senate and the congress and the country need more of it. frankly, the problems that we live through today come from individual choices of senators themselves, not the rules. when an individual senator or a colludeing caucus determine that the comity essential to an institution like the senate is a barrier to individual ambition or party ambition, the country loses. those are the moments in which the senate fulfills not its responsibility to the people but its reputation as a sanctuary of gridlock. i ask
